Shepard Becomes Third Australian Group To Impact Top 40 Radio This Century (@WeAreSheppard)


ARIA Award-winning indie/pop band SHEPPARD’s breakthrough single “Geronimo” is now certified platinum by the RIAA for digital sales and streams in excess of 1,000,000. Adding to a host of worldwide accolades and achievements, this is the Brisbane outfit’s very first U.S. certification. The track is available on their full-length debut, Bombs Away [School Boy Records/Republic Records], out now.

An international smash, “Geronimo” recently impacted American Top 40 radio, making SHEPPARD the “third Australian group to impact Top 40 in the 21st century” alongside 5 Seconds of Summer and Jet.

Fresh off their support slot on Meghan Trainor’s sold out THAT BASS TOURSHEPPARD have announced a string of U.S. dates this summer including radio shows and global festival appearances, such as Lollapalooza [7/31] and Austin City Limits [10/2 & 10/9] (see attached itinerary).  The band will also play a special L.A. headline show at The Roxy on June 8.

SHEPPARD recently closed out the Radio Disney Music Awards with a high octane performance of “Geronimo.”  Up next, the band will perform on CBS’ The Talk June 2 (check local listings.)

SHEPPARD’s story has only just begun though. Be on the lookout for more soon.
